All implants ripple the only question is whether or not you can see or feel the rippling
What you are almost certainly feeling is the rippling of the outer aspect of the shell of your implant. Contrary to some popular belief, silicone implants ripple just like saline implants, however, the rippling is often more difficult to feel. In very thin patients rippling will potentially visible with any type of implant. Rippling is more prominent with textured implants. Dull pain etiology is a little more difficult to determine, though it may be related to muscle release at surgery, or even tissue pain associated with monthly cycle. That is a question your should address to your surgeon, in person, or by phone or e-mail. Not likely to be a serious issue, however. I hope that this helps.
